"Georgia Bridge Academy (GBA) the NGAF, Georgia Post Secondary School."

 

Our successful GBA pilot program graduated the first cohort of students in November 2021.  

 

Based on lessons learned from the first GBA class experience, NGAF is making adjustments to the GBA curriculum and certification.  The next cohort of ten students will begin in January 2022. Successful completion of the proctored online program will lead to a Comp TIA-A+ Certification.  

 

A+ is the starting point for a Career in IT.  The performance-based exams certify foundational IT skills across a variety of devices and operating systems.

The North Georgia Autism Foundation (NGAF), in partnership with The University of Alabama, is starting a two-year project to implement a new program, the Stepped Transition in Education Program for Students with ASD (STEPS) into the community. STEPS was designed to help young people, 16-25 years old, with autism and related conditions develop skills to live more independently and work toward their vocational and educational goals.

 

Blue Ridge Psychological Services with Dr. Kyle Raque and Dr. Brian Johnson will be the clinical base for STEPS implementation.  NGAF has begun enrolling students and young adults. If you are interested in learning more and possibly enrolling please call Tripp Ritchie at 706-946-0499.

Research Information and Opportunities

It can be hard for parents and consumers to know which path to take for treatment, when time and resources are never unlimited. There are science-based resources to help you. Division 53 of the APA has dedicated considerable content (ECT) to helping consumers understand the research for different therapies, for a range of concerns and disorders. At the Center for Youth Development and Intervention at the UA (www.cydi.ua.edu) we are extending these efforts on a more local scale. We are here to help families access research and information.
